We’re incredibly excited to announce that, from September 2023, UTC Leeds will become part of the Rodillian Multi Academy Trust.
The Rodillian Multi Academy Trust is an organisation made up of academies and schools that work in partnership together. The Trust currently has four academies and one independent school across Leeds, Kirklees Wakefield and North Yorkshire.
The Trust has supported us over the last five years with their guidance and expertise, which has been reflected in our ‘Good’ overall Ofsted rating in January 2023 (with ‘Outstanding’ in two areas), growing student numbers and best-ever A Level results in 2022.
The move into the Rodillian Multi Academy Trust will see little to no changes for UTC Leeds students and staff. The day-to-day UTC Leeds experience with remain the same; however, there will be more opportunities for you, such as access to sports facilities and resilience activities.
Andy Goulty, Chief Executive at the Rodillian Multi Academy Trust, said: “We are thrilled to welcome UTC Leeds into our Trust, following over five years of supporting the UTC’s School Improvement Programme. UTC Leeds will bring exciting opportunities for the Trust, our staff and students, and it will support the Trust to offer more specialised Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) education.”
Hannah Wilson, Principal at UTC Leeds, said: “The support UTC Leeds has received as a Trust partner from the Rodillian Multi Academy Trust has been exceptional. We have benefitted from the range of expertise at the Trust, alongside its central services resources and ethos.|”
We look forward to continuing this supportive partnership and working closely with the Trust. We are excited to continue our journey and offer current and prospective students, alongside our local communities, even more exciting opportunities to help inspire the next generation of engineers, scientists and innovators.
